Dr Sara Bonetti
  • Research Fellow
  • Bartlett School Env, Energy & Resources
  • Faculty of the Built Environment

Sara Bonetti received a BSc degree in 2009 and a MSc degree in 2011 in Civil Engineering, both at the University of Padova (Italy). From 2012 to 2014 she was a research assistant at the University of Padova (Italy) and at the Nicholas School of the Environment (Duke University, USA), where she worked on soil-plant-atmosphere modeling. In 2018, Sara obtained her PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering at Duke University, under the supervision of Prof. Amilcare Porporato. The focus of her doctoral dissertation was the analysis and modelling of landscape evolution and stability. During her doctoral studies, Sara spent one year as a visiting graduate student at Princeton University (USA). From August 2018 to July 2020, she was a Postdoctoral Associate at the Department of Environmental Systems Science at ETH Zurich (Switzerland).

Sara joined the UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources in February 2020. Here, she primarily works on the SHEFS (Sustainable and Healthy Food Systems) project, where she contributes to the modelling and quantification of the environmental impacts of food production with a specific focus on water and soil resources.
